Ever since starting my picture-a-day way of documenting our lives in 2009 I have loved the different things I have taken pictures of. It isn't always people. Often times it is things--things we love, things we have done, rooms in our house, physical things I want to remember. As the kids look through our older albums from 2009 and on they love seeing those pictures not just of themselves, but of our 'things.' I hear comments of, "oh yeah, I remember that toy. It was my favorite," or "oh, I loved that book! I remember when Dad read us that!" or "I remember when I had that. I loved it! What happened to it?" That last one is a very good question, and the answer is usually who knows? But at least we have a picture of it to remember. So this week I have some 'things' pictures that will help my family remember some things they loved. Enjoy. . .
Sunday: Ben is usually in charge of bedtime stories. Lately Mr J has been insisting on having these. Calvin and Hobbes is something Ben has loved forever, and I really didn't know about until I met him. Ben has every book of theirs, and they have become Mr. J's favorite bedtime stories lately.
Monday: Playing games is something my family really loves. Tonight we played Clue. What a classic! Mr J just has to learn to hold his cards the right way so he doesn't show everyone his hand every few seconds :)
Tuesday: Typical after school shot from our house. Miss A doing history homework, and Mr J working on spelling.
Wednesday: After the kids leave for school is when I exercise. I walk. I love to walk. Lately I have seen these wild sunflowers up everywhere in the country where I walk. I love sunflowers and captured a picture of them as I walked by today.
Thursday: Volleyball! Miss O is playing school volleyball this year. It is the first year they can play school sports. Today was a home game, and she did awesome! It is so fun to watch your kids play.
Friday: Sometimes I work at my kids' elementary school. Today I was working in the library where my mom is the librarian, and so my kids came there after school. Nana always has a fun project for them to do. Today they were writing Japanese pen pals.
Saturday: All 4 of my kids take piano lessons. I start them the May they finish kindergarten, so with 4 we have a lot of piano music at our house, and the piano is a big deal. Lately Miss O has gotten it into her head that she needs to be getting ready to play Christmas music early--like September early, so she went through all our Christmas music and has been practicing it every day. It is kind of fun to hear 'Jingle Bells' on a hot, sunny September day. Christmas music is her latest 'thing.'
Thanks for visiting! Hope you have a great week!
